The long-rumoured PSP2 has finally been officially announced under the codename of NGP, for Next-Generation Portable.
The bullet points: - dual analog sticks - a 5-inch OLED display (960x544 resolution -- 4x the PSP's) - 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS - front touchscreen and rear touchpad - the same six-axis motion system that propels the Move, plus a three-axis compass - front and rear cameras - games offered on new flash memory-based cards - scheduled to be out in time for Christmas
If they follow thru on the Playstation Suite with a big enough library, that could be pretty interesting. The Kindle model is way to go - do your own device, but get the software on as many other devices as possible. I doubt I'm getting another handheld device, but I'd probably pick up a good PS1 game if I could carry it on my phone.
That Joystiq article saying Gran Turismo 5 wouldn't be out before the end of the year based on Amazon's fuzzy release date was absurd. (And quickly refuted, FWIW.) Store Update There were problems with this update coming up last night.
